Thank you!

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to pick up the phone, drop us an email, or text. We've heard from more people than ever before. All of you have shared your stories of using Medway's health & social care services. You told us what's good and what's not so good. 

We've been able to use your stories to help improve services for other people.
